Callum - Geography

'I find Geography such a good subject because it's so interesting and is helpful when keeping up to date with things that are happening in the world. A few of my favourite modules included Global Governance and Hazards. One highlight from the course would be the trip to Naples; it was a really great experience from both an educational and social point of view. I will be studying Geography at the University of Southampton next year.'

Careers in Geography

Geography is recognized as both a Science and an Arts A-level and therefore complements a wide variety of subjects. Geography is one of the 'facilitating' A-levels because of its academic rigor and the skills it arms students with and as a result is often appreciated as one of the three A-levels that a graduate should have. The breadth that geography offers makes it a very desirable subject for a wide variety of careers, including environmental management, humanitarian and development work, engineering, architecture and town planning, journalism, law and business management, and GIS applications (digital mapping).
